Psychedelic Psoul


Psychedelic Psoul is an album by the American psychedelic rock band The Freak Scene, and released on Columbia Records in 1967. After the release of the pioneering album, Psychedelic Moods, a year prior, lead member Rusty Evans reassembled the studio-only group to expand on the aspects of the previous effort. Among the material, the band included abnormal sound effects, fuzz guitar motifs, and utilization of tape manipulation, which was most relevant on the instrumental piece, "Grok!". In addition, Psychedelic Psoul incorporated Middle eastern influences, most notably in the tracks "A Million Grains of Sand,” “Rose of Smiling Faces” and “My Rainbow Life", all of which Evans first experimented with while recording the New York rock outfit, The Third Bardo.
